The new fabric collections will be on show at ISPO from 5-7 February.
Commenting on the new cooperation, Kevin Zan (General Manager of Sports Division, Best Pacific) said: “We are focused on delivering the newest innovations in fabrics, elastics and seamless garments to active and outdoor customers. The partnership with Hyosung allows us to deliver customer-orientated solutions integrated in our collection.”
Some of the new offerings on display will include Mipan® Aqua x™ cooling, UV, & moisture management nylon with creora® Fresh™ spandex odour neutralizing elastane; Freshgear® odour neutralizing polyester with creora® Fresh™ elastane Aerowarm®, hollow core polyester for warmth without weight, and creora® Powerfit™ elastane.
Ria Stern (Global Marketing Director of Hyosung Textiles) added: “Consumers want versatility in their garments and want to be able to work out, stop at the grocery store or run an errand with comfort and confidence. We worked with Best Pacific to develop this collection of fabrics in various weights to go from performance underwear, sports bras and base layer applications.”
